I love the happy hour at the Oyster Bar at Prohibition! Every week my boyfriend and I enjoy 50¢ delicious oysters and HH drinks at this fun bar. The staff is warm and welcoming and thoughtful. They just added some items to their menu and the burger we shared last night was absolutely delicious!! More...

BEST OYSTERS ever! This place is so freaking cool and the service was incredible, the best we've had. Mario, Jeremy and Eddie made the dinner and experience unlike any other. We came for po'boys but they changed the menu for the season and had burgers instead and we were not disappointed... their burgers are prepared in a skillet that truly harbors all of the seasoning perfectly. We absolutely plan to return and hope to enjoy their 3-course burlesque show soon and hoping Mario, Jeremy and Eddie will be working again! More...

This place is seriously fantastic. I went Monday afternoon for the first time with my boyfriend. Perfect date spot! Not too busy, amazing drinks by a friendly bartender, and delicious food all day! Not to mention 50 cent oysters during happy hour!!!! If you're looking for an awesome spot downtown, give this bar a shot. We ended up bringing my boyfriends mother back Tuesday because we had such a great time. Mario and Jeremy once again took great care of us. They were on point!!! Jeremy (the Oyster Chef) also gave us a tour of the bar and Prohibition theater where they hold shows on the weekends. We will be returning every chance we get. This is most definitely our new favorite spot More...

My favorite oyster bar ever! Jeremy and Mario have been the best staff I ever had coming to a restaurant. Since walking in and seating, they have been the most friendly and entertaining at servicing my friend and me for Happy Hour. Their oysters are phenomenal and never disappoints. I thoroughly enjoy the drink Bees Knees with my food, so refreshing and delightful. They also showed me their theater where they have shows, which we will be attending in a few weeks! You'll love the decor and the atmosphere they have to offer at Prohibition! At the very end, their special sweet shot was the clutch to the meal. Tasted just like banana foster ice cream. Definitely coming back again soon! More...

Came into The Oyster Bar at Prohibition this evening with my girlfriend and had a blast. Cocktails and oysters were great. Chase did an amazing job of taking care of us and checking in on us, and Jeremy went out of his way to show us the theatre and talked us into coming back for a show and possibly for New Year's Eve. After dinner Chase whipped us up some specialty cocktails. If you are looking for quality oysters and a great scene with some rustic prohibition history stop in for a cocktail or two. More...

We came here right as the Oyster bar and the kitchen was closing. We had a small group of people, two of them were dying to try oysters before flying out the next day. Jeremy and the resultant manager were kind enough to reopen for us and take care of us. We ordered a few dozen oysters and they were fantastic! The raw and the grilled oysters were amazing in flavor and freshness! Many many thanks! We appreciate the hospitality, the excellent service and the delicious oysters!!! More...

Love this place!!  Great service and ambiance.  Between me and my 3 friends we had just about every drink on the menu.  All were fantastic and every new concoction was better than the previous.  It's as if, the bartender, Johnathon became stronger and more powerful as the night went on.  We even walked in right after the kitchen closed and Jeremy was sympathetic to our jones'ing for oysters and shucked us up a couple dozen.  Will definitely come back for the shows.

Went for happy hour oysters, had the charbroiled and raw - they were good, but the price was amazing, $1 and .50 cents per piece, respectively. Had an old fashion, it was made right and the price was amazing ($5). Sat at the bar, service was good - thanks Jeremy! Will be going back soon and recommend to others. More...

A hidden gem only a few blocks from wherever you are with some of the best H-Town vibe the city has to offer.  Made the seven block trek through the late-afternoon humidity on the search for dynamite happy hour and oysters.  Walked up to a true prohibition-era building with a local photog out front doing a pin-up girl style photo shoot.  Already knew I'd made the right choice.Sat at the old-school bar (the kind you see in the movies, you know-the classic westerns and gangster flicks) and ordered the best $5.00 (shoulda been $15) old-fashioned I've had since my fave dive in NYC.  Not sure if he was the manager or not but Jeremy came by to personally introduce himself and make sure my 1/2 dozen Gulf Coast and 1/2 dozen Chargrilled NOLA oysters were top-notch and they were.  The rest of the staff was engaging and helpful.  Nice service all around.The 50's era rockabilly music playing and old soda-fountain art on the walls was the icing on the cake.  I'm not excited to just come back to The Oyster Bar at Prohibition but I'm excited to come back to Houston if this is the direction they're going.  Well done!

My friend and I came in on a whim on Halloween night. We had just planned on sitting at the bar & grabbing some food. It was raining, so we really weren't looking to move around from place to place. The bartender was excellent. He was super friendly & the ambiance of the evening was so much fun. I was pleasantly surprised! More...

Prohibition takes you back in time - the decor, the uniforms, the time and attention given to hand-crafting each and every cocktail. The bartenders know their drink menu and provide great recommendations. They can also make you pretty much whatever you ask for even if it's not on the menu; they really know their stuff! I always go for whatever smokey mezcal drink they make me! Also, the oysters really are all they're cracked up to be! I'm a fan of the signature chargrilled myself. I had to remove one star, though, because there is just not enough seating in this place, which makes it kind of a bummer if you go and can't be served! Otherwise Prohibition is really a fun place to meet up with your friends for happy hour. More...

The variety of oyster selection was amazing. I've been wanting to try this place for the longest and I was definitely not disappointed when I finally went. Happy hour is 50 cent oysters and we will back for that. The oysters were really good and depending on your preferences, some were favored than others but ALL WERE YUMMY. The night we went, there was only. one oyster shucker so wait time to get our food was kind of timely but so worth it. Overall a fun and great experience and only complaint would be parking. That's a no brainer since location is in downtown. If they were to open another location with better parking, that'd be my new spot. More...

After waiting 2 long hours, the oysters were pretty tasty. The service was not the best. Maybe they were having an off day. I just didn't understand why no one came over to update us on what was going on. We never found out either. It was taking forever to get drinks as well. I may go back again in the future. Big maybe. 4 stars for the tasty oysters! 1 star for the service. More...

Had a quick drink. We had the pinot noir, not sure the name,  but it was good. Will try to make it for happy hour with their 50 cents oysters. Love the decor. Parking across the street at night was $10, a bit expensive considering it closes in 30 min. More...

You can't beat $0.50 oysters during happy hour! I don't think you can get that price anywhere in Houston. If you can, let me know. Happy hour is M-F 4pm-7pmThe only catch is that you must order a beverage. There are 5 different ways you can get your oysters prepared. I would recommend ordering half a dozen of each flavor. Then order more of the ones you likeMy favorites were the Chargrilled Garlic-Fennel and Chargrilled Chimichurri. So much flavor and very juicy.  Service sucks. Squeeze your way to the bar and hopefully you can find a bartender to place your order then go find a table. Oh yeah, the crackers were stale :x More...

Amazing oysters for the price during happy hour! The Chimichurri oysters are my favorite out of the bunch. The raw oysters tasted relatively fresh. The ambiance puts you in the prohibition era, very nice. Customer service was fair, drinks were a decent price, nothing to complain here. More...

One of my favorite places for happy hour!1. Who doesn't like 50 Cent oysters?2. The drinks are on top of it!3. Servers/bartenders serve and dress the part!Had a great experience here, whoever the owner of this place is, is a genius! The interior is classy and sophisticated. From the chandelier to the fancy chairs, this place should definitely be lit up so it could be more Instagram worthy! 5/5The oysters are delicious. I got a dozen of the fresh Gulf coast oysters and a dozen of the fennel and garlic parmesan oysters. The oysters taste fresh and were a great size. The baked oysters were perfectly cooked, flavors were on point, and very presentable! 5/5It was walk up service to the bar and I got nothing but perfect service. My bartender was very attentive and professional. Those who brought us the food were extremely careful and quick. They cleaned off the table and nature we had extra plates, crackers, or utensils. 5/5I had the Tequila drink only happy hour and my friend had the Orange is the New Black. Delicious! Bartenders really know how to make a drink! 5/5 If you are an oyster lover and love great service with a hint of Elegance, definitely check this place out! More...

Came here early to get into the late night showing of "Bathtub full of Gin" at the prohibition theater in the back. Really awesome aesthetic, and an even better old fashioned. I've also heard great things about the brunches, so i'll be back for sure. This is a great downtown date night location. Highly recommended! More...

This is an amazing spot in Downtown! We met an incredibly nice and super personable bartender named Taylor that made our experience very special. He created one of the best, refreshing cocktails we've came across... "The Toppham"... Seriously you have to stop by on your travels here, Taylor and the staff there will make sure you're glad you did! More...

Monday is all day happy hour oysters. Rest of the weekdays it's 4-7. $0.50 grilled oysters and raw. WTH are you waiting for?! !?!  There are a variety to choose from. Parmesan is probably our favorite. All grilled oysters come with two toast to suck up all that juiciness. Taylor, the bartender was beyond friendly. We rec rec recommend you gooooo. Still questioning should you go or not? Well when we went. The fire alarm went off. And not a single person even flinched because they were waiting for their oysters. THATS HOW GOOD THEY ARE. You definitely get your money's worth. Why are you still reading this? Go before they run out! (Which they do sometimes). Also don't look like a dummy. Just grab a seat and a menu. Then order at the bar. More...

Absolutely gorgeous venue and food. Walked in on a Saturday night very ambitiously with no reservation but managed to get a table. Had the oysters, burger and the short rib all of which was delish. Cocktails were great too and of course we were to full for dessert More...

Paris meets Las Vegas in Houston Imagine Cabaret joining up with Cirque de Soliel and Jack Ruby’s Carousel Club; then you might have an idea what an evening at Prohibition Supperclub & Bar is like. There are musical numbers in burlesque style complete with the attitude and pasties while aerial acrobats twirl above your head. It’s all set in a swanky speakeasy décor and comes with a 3 course meal that’s as good as the entertainment. Did I mention the lithe fire eater? The musical numbers range from the naughty “Don’t Tell Mama” to the show stopping “Be Italian” from “Nine.” The cast is known as the Midnight Dolls and they know how to put on a show. You can also dine in the restaurant or sip at the bar but please don’t miss the extravaganza going on in the club. Our waitress confided that she hadn’t yet told her grandmother the kind of place she worked in. Don’t worry ma’am, grand’mère would enjoy it too. More...
